At the Syrian coast found Israeli "stones" spying on the Russian fleet

48
Behind the "muscle-waving" of the Russian fleet in the Mediterranean, more “eyes” could be observed than imagined: on one of the uninhabited islands opposite the Syrian port of Tartus, dummies of stones with camouflaged cameras were found. The devices were allegedly installed by the Israeli military.


Spy equipment, hidden in artificial stones, was discovered by fishermen, reports The Sunday Times. The camouflaged cameras themselves did not arouse suspicion - it was likely that the soldiers who had installed them first took samples of local stones so that the dummies seemed similar.

Syrian state television showed the discovery on the air - a camera, satellite dish, batteries, cables and other devices, according to a British newspaper.

"It is believed that they were installed by scuba divers from the Flotilla 13, an elite unit of the Israeli maritime special forces," the translation of the article InoPressa states. It is assumed that the special forces arrived to Tartus on a submarine, and the equipment was delivered to the island at night by inflatable boats with a silent motor.

"Stones" could track and film the movement of Russian warships and broadcast images to Israel via satellite, "the British newspaper writes. In Damascus, it was not excluded that the devices could also track the movement of Syrian troops. How long the equipment was on the island is not installed .

7 in March, the Lebanese television channel Al-Manar reported that the Syrian military had discovered several devices that are capable of video and photographing and transmitting recorded information, reminds NEWSru Israel. State news agency SANA reported that spying equipment was found on Al-Namal Island (an area of ​​around 150 square meters) and accused Israel of "involvement in the conspiracy against Syria."

At that time, Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor refused to comment on the situation. "We are not embroiled in the Syrian civil war - neither on the propaganda or the verbal front, nor on the real battlefield," Haaretz quotes the statement of the diplomat.

Stones “spies” in 2006 were found in Moscow. It was only in 2012 that the British authorities recognized that United Kingdom diplomats were using recording equipment.

        It’s one thing to guess, but I’m saying that if there are facts, then you need to either stop this business or use milking DISINFs. And here, as it seems to me, even if they knew it, they trivially hammered into this matter. And it’s impossible. At least it was necessary to use for their own purposes.

    It would be nice if Russia would provide Syria with planes and helicopters reconnaissance and electronic warfare. The fact is that at very low altitudes most of Syrian territory does not see Syrian air defense. A pair of radar planes will solve this problem. Syria also needs modern air defense control and intelligence points. In general, Russia could very well help Syria. I hope help is already coming.

      I wonder why this is England so Israel passed? What didn’t they share?

      Relations have always been strained, since the days of the White Paper and the British mandate. At times, relations were getting better, sometimes at a turn.

      1969 England refuses to sell Chifren tanks to Israel

      1973 The Edward Heath government during the Yom Kippur War imposes an arms embargo on the Middle East.
      etc.

      But recently, in view of the Islamization of England, the rate of deterioration in relations has increased very much

      2007 British colleges and universities have decided to boycott teachers and researchers from Israel. An overtly hostile attitude forced many Israeli students studying in universities in England to leave the country.

      2008 Britain calls for a boycott of goods produced in Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria. These products are marked with special stickers.

      2009 United Kingdom blocks Phantom fighter spare parts sales

      2009 An arrest warrant has been issued for Defense Minister Ehud Barak for “war crimes” in Operation Cast Lead in Gaza.

      2009 English Foreign Ministry actually bans British royal visit to Israel

      2010 The deterioration of relations between the two states associated with the falsification of Mossad passports of British citizens.
      the list goes on

        Well, you started in the middle, but it started with Comrade. Stalin, it was with his idea that the state of Israel was formed to the peak of British interests.
        After the death of Stalin, Israel chose the side of the British and Americans, and the USSR began supplying Arabs with advisers and weapons. Out of habit, the Israelis continue to hate the successor of the USSR to Russia. But I really hope that Israel will still change its allies. And it will be a friend of Russia.

          We can add that, in contrast to the "Soviet-American project Israel", Britain had and still has its own - "Palestine". The British did not support the idea of ​​creating a Jewish state and openly promised Palestine, starting from the 20's, their own, besides, before the creation of Israel, the British had a mandate in Palestine and they did not want to leave. True, after a series of terrorist acts and the murder of British citizens carried out by Jewish militants (1946-47), they had to leave. Not all shaves go hand in hand with the Americans and you can play this, which is done periodically by all interested parties. By the way, the Jewish Autonomous Region is an echo of that distant policy.

            Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 2 Nov. 1917 of the year

            Dear Lord Rothschild,

            On behalf of His Majesty’s Government, I have the honor to convey to you the following declaration, which expresses sympathy for the Zionist aspirations of the Jews, submitted to the Cabinet of Ministers and approved by it:

            “His Majesty’s Government is approvingly considering the establishment of a national center for the Jewish people in Palestine, and will make every effort to help achieve this goal; it’s clearly understood that no action should be taken that would violate the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country. ”

            I would be very grateful to you if you brought this Declaration to the attention of the Zionist Federation.

            Sincerely,

            Arthur James Balfour.

            - Balfour Declaration of November 2, 1917


            Then
            In the 1922 White Paper, the British government reaffirmed its support for the Balfour Declaration and the decision to establish a Jewish state in Palestine. However, the book emphasized that the Palestinian Arabs have the full right to reside in Palestine and that their rights will not be infringed. Jewish repatriation to Eretz Yisrael will be limited for economic reasons, and the Arab state of Transjordan will be formed in its eastern part. Thus, the British government put an end to the idea of ​​creating Greater Israel on the one hand and Greater Syria on the other.

And it would be nice to lay such radio-controlled pebble mines in the foundations of missile defense systems under construction aimed at Russia. And you can not radio-controlled, but those that work at a certain load: you put the equipment - "overweight" - an explosion. Only fingerprints do not need to be left. It is good that we are not currently producing the element base, which means that it will be impossible to suspect us of “robbery of flights”.

    The Libyan scenario only the exact opposite is to help the government survive and its Army.
    Wait, Israeli intelligence is approaching Assad. In those countries, the role of the individual is great .... the assassination of the President of the Country demoralizes .....
    Otherwise, the Abreks will come to us and with the help of those “abreks” (from whom you buy products on the market right now)) they will kill our Women and Children (as happened in Chechnya, when Russian teachers were cut with a chainsaw, and their children were killed and their guts wrapped around the fence )))
    .... without distinguishing between Slavic traitors from FSB, MVD, VV and all branches of Power. Often they are in the first place ...... so to speak with an "insult" that they took money for the "roof"-hI eat and do the Judas from these structures ....

    If not, we will see (by broadcast)) how they will drag a certain colonel on the streets of Moscow and someone will say "Wow" "....
    All this is extremely serious ..... the only question is how much we lose ETERNAL PROTECTING ......

    IT IS NECESSARY TO ATTACK _ THE ENEMIES ARE KNOWN _NO TIME ....
